Whenever I travel to a new city I find myself always thinking, could I live there.  I have been to 17 different countries and I can honestly say that I could only live in 5 of those countries.  Singapore makes the list at lucky number 6.  When I started planning my trip I only booked my friend and I for 2 days and 1 night in Singapore, that was bad planning on part. 1389799634767 From the minute I arrived I fell in love with Singapore.  It has all my major things I look for when choosing a place to live, city feel, diverse people, cultural things to do, great weather, and proximity to the beach.  It’s easily accessible without a car and the city is very walkable.  There were tons of expats and for the most part everyone speaks English.  The only down fall to Singapore is how expensive it is.  My friend and I arrived in the early morning hours and decided to hit the ground running, we went to our hostel, 5 Stones. I highly recommend it, it was in a great location and the staff was very friendly and knowledgeable.  We got dressed and decided we wanted Indian food and to do little shopping. We walked for about 20 minutes and arrived in ” Little India” it has many restaurants and many places to shop and get beauty treatments down.1389963544428
